Cary Towne Center is a shopping mall in Cary, North Carolina. It is managed by CBL & Associates Properties.
Cary Village Mall opened in 1979 with Ivey's and Hudson Belk as anchors. In 1991, the mall expanded, adding a food court and three new anchors: Thalhimer's, JC Penney, and Sears, and was renamed Cary Towne Center. Dillard's was added a year later, replacing the original Ivey's store which had been a tenant since 1979. Thalhimer's became Hecht's in 1992, which became Macy's in 2006.
